Kids! Bring your favorite book and read to a dog! Parents: Does your child love dogs? Is your child a reluctant reader or has difficulty reading aloud? This pilot program, Paws for Reading, gives struggling readers an opportunity to improve literacy skills in a non-judgmental environment by reading to trained therapy dogs. Fun and effective, this technique helps children gain confidence and improve reading skills. Children who are proficient readers are also welcome. With enough interest, this will become a regular monthly program starting in January.

Chester
Author
Melanie Watt
Review
This is supposed to be a story about a mouse, but Chester the cat has other ideas. Hijacking the story from the author, Chester sends the mouse packing and tries to rewrite the story with himself as the star. However, the author gets the upper hand in the end, leaving Chester less than happy in a pink tutu. A cute picture book that will leave you laughing out loud.  Reserve a copy!

The Battle of the Red Hot Pepper Weenies and Other Warped and Creepy Tales
Author
David Lubar
Review
I picked up this book to encourage my 10 year old son to read for the summer reading log. He is very choosy over the books he will read and rather reluctant to read over playing on the computer or playstation. I gave him this book to read and once he started it he had difficulty putting the book down until he had finished the book in its entirety. Now my other kids are reading it and enjoying it also.  Reserve a copy!
